JD/Master of Engineering & Computer Science

This unique combination of programs has been initiated by the College of Law and the College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) to benefit students who are interested in technology-oriented practice. A J.D./M.S. from one of the many graduate programs offered through ECS significantly enhances the scope of a student's legal education in such areas as intellectual property, technology, computers, health care, and environmental law. The added dimension that an M.S. in engineering and computer science brings to a student's legal education increases marketability and broadens career opportunities. With an appropriate undergraduate background, a student may obtain both degrees in three academic years and a summer term. Those pursuing an ECS graduate degree in an area other than that of their undergraduate degree may be expected to complete additional remedial courses. Other requirements vary by program. M.S. degrees in ECS are offered in aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering management, environmental engineering, environmental engineering science, hydrogeology, manufacturing engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, neuroscience, solid-state science and technology, and systems and information science.
